The creation of the Muckquaker was inspired by a Collection speech given by Lucius Outlaw, a Haverford philosophy professor, in which he remarked that Haverford students were no longer willing to ask tough questions. The Muckquaker sought to ask these tough questions as well as provide Haverford with a community newspaper they could call exclusively their own. The Muckquaker recognized the importance of the Bi-College News but felt that because it was a united paper with Bryn Mawr, it did not adequately cover life at Haverford. The Muckquaker acknowledged the potential bias in their articles, but said they would not apologize to anyone who was offended. Instead, they would encourage them to write an article for the Muckquaker.
